he all clear that rang
throughout Israel last
week reverberated
throughout the Detroit Jew-
ish community this week, as
Jewish Federation and Jew-
ish Community Council
leaders plan the first soli-
darity mission to Israel since
the outbreak of the Persian
Gulf war.
"We promised that we
would-visit Israel as soon as
possible," said Federation
President Mark Schlussel.
"Now the Gulf war is over,
and it's time to keep our
promise."
The trip, which is open to
the entire Jewish commun-
ity, is scheduled for April 21
through April 26.
Mr. Schlussel said the
solidarity trip was originally
scheduled last January, but
was postponed after leaders
received a travel advisory
from the State Department.
"With the potential of war so
close, we felt we'd be a hin-
drance to the -state of Israel,"
Mr. Schlussel said. "We
couldn't be physically there
with the Israelis during the
Scud attacks, but we were
with them emotionally. Now
it's time to be there physical-
ly."
Paul D. Borman; president
of the Jewish Community
Council, said the purpose of
the trip was to express soli-
darity and not to raise funds.
"The Israeli people have
been alone since August and
have suffered the horrors of
bombs and gas masks," he
said. "They need a reaffir-
mation of am achud — one
people — in the wake of this
horrible ordeal."
The cost of the trip has not
yet - been determined, but
will accommodate as many
people as wish to participate,
according to David Gad-
Harf, executive director of
the Council.
"We want this trip to be
mostly experiential rather
than consist of people listen-
ing to speeches in hotel con-
ference rooms," Mr. Gad-
Harf said. "There will be lots
of time for people to visit
family and friends, even
though we'll most likely be
visiting areas most affected
by the Scud attacks."
Meanwhile, other
Detroiters have bee
n mak-
ing travel plans through
local travel agencies.
Jeny and Nicholas Kerin
missed their parents' 50th

wedding anniversary in
November because of their
fear of war. Now, the couple
plans to spend three weeks
in May visiting their family
and friends in Israel.
"We kept trying to
reschedule," Mrs. Kerin
said, "but each time we had
to postpone. Now we are so
happy to go back. These past
few months have seemed
like years."
Regina Goldstein, vice
president of Goldstein
Travel in Southfield, said
she's thrilled by the number
of people now calling to book
trips to Israel.
"It's like a black cloud has
finally lifted," Mrs. Golds-
tein said. "A la of the calls
I've taken have been from
families who want to check
on their families and friends.
Some of the others have been
from people who are starting
to plan their vacations."
Kelly Budzyn, a travel
consultant with Crown
Travel in Southfield, said
she's booked several trips for
Detroit students who are
returning to school in Israel.
Uri Bar-Ner, Israel's Mid-
west Consul General who
returned to the United
States Tuesday, said life in
Israel was returning to nor-
mal.
All airlines, with the ex-
ception of TWA have resum-
ed regular flight schedules,
he said, and about 25,000
Arab workers from the West
Bank have returned to their
jobs in Israel.
Mr. Bar-Ner said Israel is
now concentrating on Secre-
tary of State James Baker's
visit next week. In addition
to assurances that all Iraqi
Scuds and missiles have been
removed, he said, Israel
wants Iraq to sign an
agreement promising they
will not attack.
"Israel is no longer in an
official state of emergency,"
Mr. Bar-Ner said. "Now
we're back to the regular
state of alert we are always
in because of the potential
threat from the neighboring
Arab countries." ❑
